Who Do You Think You Are? Live, Glasgow
We exhibited at the highly successful Who Do You Think You Are? Live in Glasgow in late August. There was quite a bit of interest in our cruises. Welcome to those who signed up to this newsletter at the event. Eleven of our cruise presenters and other UTP partners visited us at our booth. We have photo galleries of all these and more on our cruises Facebook page (scroll down to early September posts)
Successful 5th cruise – British Isles discovery cruise
Our 5th cruise over 10 nights around the British Isles was very successful. We had superb weather, visited some amazing places, a high quality to the presenters and a great conference generally. Three of our cruisers have since submitted some great reports, which I think anyone will find fascinating reading (scroll down past more recent posts to find the reports)
Baltic cruise alert – cabins selling out and steep price increases
Don’t miss out! – book now before our limited allocation of cabins sells out – leaving only much higher-priced alternatives. Click here to see why.
11-25 July 2015 – www.unlockthepastcruises.com/cruise8
This cruise is still 10 months away, but some cabin categories are sold out and price increases of hundreds of dollars are occurring in all categories outside our allocation.
6th cruise – 3 nights out of Sydney – just 6 weeks to go
23-26 October 2014 – www.unlockthepastcruises.com/cruise6
There are still places available on this cruise at good prices, but book soon before the cruise line closes bookings
Norfolk Island conference – just 7 weeks to go
29-31 October 2014 – www.unlockthepastcruises.com/norfolkisland
Places still available
This three-day conference on Norfolk Island has some tie-in with the 6th 3 night cruise out of Sydney. Discounts for those doing the 6th cruise and this conference – and also for couples on the tour/conference.
7th cruise – 5 nights Fremantle – Esperance – Albany
19-24 January 2015 – www.unlockthepastcruises.com/cruise7
Book soon for best prices and choice of cabins. Some categories already sold out. Unsold cabins from our allocation will be recalled in November.
This cruise coincides with Albany’s Anzac Centenary: Albany was the gathering point for the convoys carrying the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) and New Zealand Expeditionary Force (later to be known collectively as the ANZACs), that departed from Albany in November and December 1914. The cruise program will have some tie in with this occasion—as part of a wider general interest program.
